I’m really big on brownies. In middle school and high school my friends and I would go on weekly dates to T.G.I.Fridays before we went to the movies. And, I know high school was a million years ago but…

If T.G.I.Fridays is still offering their brownie sundae. I strongly suggest you give it a go. I used to order it it every time, without fail. Because guys, that gooey brownie center? It’s what dreams are made of. 

So I like brownies. I’m not one to pick favorites, but brownies and chocolate chip cookies tie for my favorite desserts. Of. All. Time. There, I said it.

Healthy Avocado Brownies

A little while ago I made some chocolate pudding with some sneaky avocado in there. It was so creamy and silky smooth that it got me thinking… what other chocolatey tasties can I make from avocado?

Now, I know I have a few brownies on my site. Liiike these gooey brownies, or this brownie skillet, or these no bake peppermint brownies. Me likey the brownies. 

THESE brownies, though. Oh emm gee I love these brownies!! They are so dark, rich, chocolatey, and DELICIOUS. They have a cakey texture and are super moist and I couldn’t be happier with how they tuned out. Also, super noteworthy: I offered my kids a brownie after dinner and my older son was SO into it. Like, ate it all.

I love when I sneak healthy things into my kids diet and they don’t even know about it. Mwahaha! So, these brownies are totally family friendly in my opinion! Especially if you have a little nugget that looooves the chocolate. Ok, let’s get baking!

Place your large avocado, eggs, vanilla, coconut sugar, and ghee (butter or coconut oil works too) in your food processor. Process until it’s completely creamed together.

Add the almond flour (cashew or hazelnut flour works too), cocoa powder, baking soda, and sea salt to the food processor. Process until completely combined.

Add the chocolate chips and pulse a few times to get the chocolate chips incorporated. 

Line a square pan with parchment paper. I used a 9×9 inch pan, but 8×8 inch will work too. If you’re using an 8×8, you’ll get thicker brownies and may just have to bake them for about 5 more minutes.

Pour the batter into the pan and spread it out evenly. Sprinkle with additional chocolate chips and bake for 17 – 20 minutes until the top is set and it bounces back when you gently touch it with your finger.
